This class meets at Peterson Dumesnil House at 301 S Peterson Ave, Louisville, KY. Enrollment is limited and advanced registration is required. 

In this class, will play several rhythms from West Africa, primarily learned from Nigerian and Ghanaian teachers.  This music is an opportunity to move beyond our individual selves and hear rhythm and parts in a new way, as a community creating together.  

We will learn techniques, cultural knowledge, and build complex rhythms, but the focus of these classes is creating music together as a community. As my teacher often says, "It's not about you. It's about us."

African drums can be borrowed between classes.
No experience necessary.
